Description: There are around 80 species of magnolia all around the world in Asia, the Carabbean, Central, North, and South America. Magnolias have large, beautiful cup-shaped flowers that bloom in the spring before the leaves break bud. Magnolias first evolved millions of years ago before bees. It is believed that the flowers of this genus evolved to encourage pollination by beetle. Specific details on the plant vary by species.
